K-Pop Readathon: Round-Up

I can’t believe it’s only been a month since I posted my TBR for this readathon. I’ve been on a journey, guys. Last month I was firmly on the BTS bandwagon and open to listening to other groups. Now I have three different K-Pop playlists on Spotify with over 20 hours of music across them. I fell HARD into a K-Pop hole and honestly, it’s the only thing keeping me sane during this pandemic.

Whilst my Spotify is thriving, my reading is still a little slow. I just about managed to finish the six prompts for Team BTS, and I almost stuck to my TBR!

Here’s a reminder of the prompts:

And here’s what I read, with links to their reviews:

Boy With Luv: Contemporary – Jo Baker’s The Body Lies

Dionysus: Greek mythology – Madeleine Miller’s Circe

Black Swan: Favourite genre – Christopher J. Yates’s Black Chalk

Persona: Own voices – Ijeoma Oluo’s So You Want to Talk About Race

Friends: Buddy read – M. L. Rio’s If We Were Villains
(re-read, buddy reading with my bestie)

Zero O’Clock: Start reading at 00:00 – Tiffany Tsao’s The Majesties
(review to come)

None of my choices particularly blew me away, but I loved re-reading If We Were Villains and it’s still a five-star read for me. I had so much fun doing this readathon though and it definitely helped me discover some new favourite K-Pop groups!

Are you taking part in any summer readathons?
